Entryway Beautification Project

 
 
The character and beauty of entryways ​​into a city can have a great impact on economic development and leave a lasting impression on visitors and residents​. On April 2, 2012 the Moscow City Council identified the improvement of the City's entryways as a Council Goal during the Council's 2013 goal setting session as:
 

"Develop improvement plans for the beautification of public right-of-way at city entrances by 2014." FY2013 Moscow City Council Goals.

This goal was further refined by the City Council to consider the City entryways not only as discrete locations, but rather as continuous corridors​ beginning at the City entryways and continuing to the City's downtown area.

The Entryway Beautification Project is intended to examine the aesthetic condition of Moscow's principal arterial corridors and identify improvement opportunities that could positively impact the community's appearance and character. This includes both the examination of improvements that may occur within the public rights-of-way, such as landscaping and roadway enhancements, as well as potential amendments to private development standards for the City Council's consideration. 
 
This Project is being guided by a Steering Committee that includes representatives of a variety of community stakeholder groups including corridor business and property owners,  Moscow City Council, Moscow Chamber of Commerce,  University of Idaho,  Idaho Department of Transportation, Latah County and the City's Planning and Arts Commissions.
